Tiny hearts inside an allover pattern, in a set of hat & mitts. Colorwork in two colors for a simple classic style, or variegate colors in foreground and/or background for complex Fair Isle looks. Choice of two lateral braid styles; Estonian or Latvian.

Originally separate patterns of tam with ski hat option, and Fingerless mitts with full mittens option — now all together in one purchase.  One download includes two patterns.
